What is Tulsi?
Tulsi, also called Holy Basil, is one of the most sacred plants in India and is considered “The Queen of Herbs” for its restorative and spiritual properties. It has been used for thousands of years to support a healthy response to stress, natural detoxification, and restore balance and harmony.
"Regular consumption of tulsi tea may be compared with the regular practice of yoga, which can be considered ‘adaptogenic’ through nurturing and nourishing the body - mind - spirit while fostering a sense of relaxation and wellbeing. Like yoga, tulsi has a calming effect that leads to clarity of thought, along with a more relaxed and calm disposition. “(1)
